Key Quotes:

  • “The thing that I keep reminding my folks who are having, you know, probably similar reactions as your producers, is the market’s not discriminating, right? The reality of what any individual producer is going through is the exact same reality as any individual wholesale broker.” – Ted Stuckey
  • “If you think about NBS, and why we exist, what we do, it’s, it’s giving that local agent competence and meeting them where they are. Uniquely, we will broker a monoline work comp policy for a minimum premium.” – Ted Stuckey
